borland assemblies on mono

2005-02-21 08:53:25 PM
im going to develop an webapplication and the final deployment would be
on a dedicaded linux/apache/mono/xsp box. my 2003 projects run fine on
that environment, and now i am trying to setup a few delphi 2005 apps,
but mono doesnt seem to like the borland assemblies:
gacutil -i Borland.Data.Common.dll
Assembly '/mnt/andre/devel/dotnet/borland/Borland.Data.Common.dll' has the
non-standard metadata heap #-.
Recompile it correctly (without the /incremental switch or in Release
mode).Failure adding assembly to the cache: The file specified is not a valid
is there a way to get this running on mono?
as far as i can tell that "#-" metadata are debugging symbols, can i simply
strip them out somehow?
am i allowed to modify the borland assemblies (decompilers)?
are mono-compatible versions available?
are sources to Borland.* included in a delphi2005 distribution?
thx in advance,
